Opinion: Considering I could never get used to Kiss Him Not Me I wasn’t sure how much I’d like this series. I bought the first volume and was instantly OBSESSED. This series was so funny and so wonderful in so many ways, I binged the first 3 volumes instantly. (My poor budget)

The art is really amazing. It is very modern but very unique in it’s own way. The author mainly writes yaoi and honestly yaoi mangaka have the best art style usually. The guys are obviously drawn super handsome and the girl is super cute as well.

Biggest draw of this series is the comedy. The heroine is a prim and proper high school president during the day, and a near psychotic obsessed fan girl in her free time. The heroines crazy antics are balanced by the emotionally constipated male lead who gradually learns how to express himself from the heroine.

This series ended up being very cute with many “doki doki” moments. I think above that despite the switched bodies genre being popular this series still manages to stand above as super unique. Can’t wait for the last volume!

If you enjoy shoujo with a bit of comedy and have ever been a “Fan Girl” this is a must read!

Final Rating: 4/5

Extra: From the Mangaka of the wildy popular “Kiss Him Not Me!
